The Soul Machine himself, Cee-Lo Green, has announced that his old group, Goodie Mob, is reforming for a new album, supposedly due this fall.
Goodie Mob were part of the Dungeon Family, a collection of Atlanta-based rappers that put Hot 'Lanta on the map in the 1990s with albums like Soul Food and OutKast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik.
The Mob, so named because "the Good Die Mostly Over Bullshit," according to their track "Fighting," had something of a slump after Cee-Lo left suddenly in the middle of production for their 1999 album World Party. They were dropped from Arista Records shortly afterwards and haven't recorded an album since 2005's Livin' Life as Lumberjacks.
But Cee-Lo recently took to Twitter to announce the release of a new album, We Sell Drugs Too, apparently scheduled for release this fall.
It took a while, but it's shaping up to be a great year for hip-hop, what the with Jay-Z/Kanye collaboration and the Tribe Called Quest documentary that came out recently. Now if only we can pull Andre 3000 back into low Earth orbit and get a new OutKast album together, we'll be all set.
